Twelve Scots farm and agri-businesses are set to showcase the financial and environmental benefits of generating power from renewables at this month’s Royal Highland Show.

 

The companies – dubbed the “clean dozen” and including well-known names like ice cream maker Mackie’s – are using a range of technologies, including wind power, solar energy, biomass and hydro.

 

The companies in the initiative also include Scottish classics like porridge oats, represented by both Hamlyns of Scotland in Banffshire and The Oatmeal of Alford, which uses hydro-electricity to power its mill in Aberdeenshire.
